I don't know about everyone else, but there is something so relaxing about searching and destroying split or tired ends. Perhaps I'm just scissor happy and I like the way shears cut tiny pieces of hair. Anyways, I just get lost when I'm doing it. One side always gets more attention than the other because after a while you get tired.
|I believe I did a thorough job!|
I search and destroy in small sections, I twist my hair to get a better look and slide my fingers around it just to be sure. I caught up on a few YouTube hair videos and watched (listened to) two movies on Netflix. I did eat during the process. I know I had a lot of things to take care of (like homework) but at least I wasn't fully unproductive. :)
I'm happy I sat down and did it. Right after I moisturized my hair with Hello Hydration water mix, I proceeded to do the greenhouse effect with two shower caps.
This week makes 7 weeks post. I honestly don't know if I want to stretch or if I'm ready for a relaxer (my roots are definitely ready for a touch-up). My longest stretch that I can remember was 11 weeks, I have no shame in wanting to cut it short this time around. As long as I passed a 7 week mark, I'm okay. Out of laziness I want to stretch but my roots are crazy difficult. So I should probably do a protein treatment and clarify a week before...My next wash day I plan to change things up a little- some avocado and a little mayo.
After the calcium build-up, I was so fed-up with my hair and I planned on relaxing ASAP. I've calmed down since then and learned to deal with my hair better. I've been debating on sticking to no-lye or not, I think I will stick to it because I can't apply the relaxer as fast as I want. Plus I can't deal with scalp burns right now. I plan on getting tough curls to 'relax', my hair can be so stubborn sometimes.
What are your thoughts on searching and destroying split/tired ends?
I might be obsessed...
